I Was Diagnosed With Bipolar Disorder, And I’m Struggling With This New Label

When I first heard the word, when I first received the diagnosis, panic consumed me. Anger devoured me, and a wave of fear washed over me.

Or maybe it was relief?

I mean, I knew it was coming. I had known for a very long time. The signs were all there. I vacillate between periods of extreme agitation and apathy. Of lethargy, anxiety, intense sadness, and acute productivity. And I do so quickly.

My personality can shift on a dime.
